I wonder if the halo 4 controller will ring up as 45 bucks. It is a wireless 360 controller, after all

Hmm, do you have to buy the 360 version of Black Ops to get that deal on the Live card and 800 points? I have the PS3 version preordered and would prefer it on that system.

$20 off a 3ds XL sounds pretty good. How good can the black friday deals possibly be on that thing. I guess I have until 11/17 to find out.


Flame Red 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land preinstalled for 149.99 from Best Buy. Best deal for the system I see, but no XL deals this year unless Target or GameStop pulls a fast one (which I will doubt)

Target last year had a similar bundle for the same price I believe. I thought the big retailers (not gamestop) had the same bundle last year for same price on the 3DS. I didn't see a 3DS listed int eh Wal-Mart ad, so Target is left. I'd like to get it from Target to get the extra 5% for red card, but at this rate, it might be from BB.

Release the ad Target, you know you want to :)

Still no 3DS xl bundles. What exactly is the big difference between the XL and regular 3DS besides bigger screen. And does the Bigger Screen make a big difference. My son is wanting one this year and I never have been a fan of handheld gaming so don't know much about these.

from what i've seen on the interwebs, the differences are as follows:

1) 90% Bigger Screens (duh) though the resolution is the same so things will look more pixelated. This is maybe a problem? I don't know, I think pixels are hot.

2) Slightly better battery life. Not sure by how much, but a little better.

3) the unit is bigger, but not by as much as you would expect. It seems they take better advantage of the system's real-estate and increase the screen size without increasing the actual

4) the hinge is supposed to be better, i guess the one on the standard 3ds feels kind of flimsy

so the deals for $150 3ds + mario 3d land are really good, but I think that it's not worth it to buy an inferior piece of hardware to save some money. I'll be buying the XL for $20 off at BB next week unless gamestop or target announce a better deal. It seems unlikely, since the XL just came out this summer and retailers probably want to move as much of the regular 3ds as possible this holiday.

Thank You for your input. That was going to be my next question. Would it be worth it to buy the 3DS Bundle on BF for $150 or buy the XL for $20 off BB next week and I was also gonna buy the B2G1 free 3DS games and buy Mario Bros. 2, SML 3D, and Mario Kart.

I'd recommend the XL 3ds over the regular 3ds if portability isnt an issue. The increase in screen size would help since you won't have to hold the 3ds 12 inches away from ur face when ur trying to play and the improved battery life could be useful if you dont have an outlet every where u go, since the regular 3ds can die pretty fast and u have to charge it regularly if you want to play it on the go. The longest time my until my 3ds died was about 5-6 hours but about 4 of those hours it was one standby mostly

I think this was posted yesterday by Louie( unfortunately, not CK)anyway, the Paper Mario deal is crazy good. the coupon stacks with that so you are essentially getting Paper Mario and NSMB2 for 22.50 each, assuming you count the coupon as currency( I do as I shop at Kmart rather frequently)

Not that I need one, but would you get the $30 coupon, $15 coupon, and 11% in points (plus $15 off normal retail price) on a 3DS on Nov. 11? 154.99-45-(11%*154.99) = roughly $93.

Good time to price match those Gamer Club Unlocked purchases.

Save $10 when you buy ANY ONE Xbox 360, Wii U or PS3 game regularly priced $59.99 OR $30 when you buy ANY TWO Xbox 360, Wii U or PS3 games regularly priced $59.99 and up.

Buy 1 Get 1 40% off ALL 3DS, DS, Wii and Wii U games priced $49.99 or below.

$20 gc with 3DS/3DS XL game system purchase.

$10 gc with Nintendo Wii Game System purchase.



Looks like I'll be getting back $10 each for Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Halo 4, and Black Ops 2.

Thanks for the heads up, but some stores won't match bundle deals.
And since it's $10 for two games, how do you get $10 for each game? Save $10 meaning $120 - $10 or $60 - $10 + $60 - $10?

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

Yeah this is YMMV. Without a specific deal on each game many managers will not price match this. You will have more luck when buying the game this week but past sales might not work.

Fixed the OP for clarification. You can get $10 back for any game you purchased in the last 30 days (60 if you're silver at Bestbuy) or buy it at TRU for $10 off or you can get $30 of at TRU if you buy 2 games.

I"m confused by what you're asking.

According to what the OP is saying you automatically save $10 when you buy one $59.99 game. You save $30 if you buy too $59.99 games.

I think that is a fancy way of saying all $59.99 games will ring up as $49.99 and if you buy two $59.99 games they will ring up as $89.98 + tax.

I would never get Best Buy to PM this and many people are going to have a bitch of a time as it would be open to interpretation if their PM policy covers such a promotion.

I would have been much happer to see a Buy 2 Get $40 or $50 gift card to be honest.

And just some background information..... You always see weird promos during COD releases because in the past Activision has forbid retailers putting the game on sale for a certain amount of time. To get around this they typically have to be creative in the way they list promotions.

Great deal on Paper Mario, would jump on it if I wasn't already going to burn a ton on the Wii U. Knowing Nintendo games, though, that may be as good a deal as you'll find for some time.

Now playing: Gears of War: Judgment, Fire Emblem

Well if you bring the Ad it clearly states ANY game $59.99 is $10 off so if they can't translate that then you must have retarded people at your Bestbuy.

And for the others I was receding that this is a good pm opportuniy for Dishonored, Borderlands 2 Halo 4, and Black Ops 2 since they haven't been on sale nationally ( No Fry's stores in NY here).

I'm thinking no for the $15 coupon if K-Mart differentiates between video games and video game hardware. If they don't, it's a pretty good deal since it looks like we won't get many 3DS XL bundles for BF. I'd rather get a cheaper 3DS and wait for an XL color I'd actually want.
